United Airlines is expanding its Barcelona routes with a daily flight to San Francisco

Starting in 2024, the carrier will operate a direct flight between the Catalan and Californian cities every day from May to October.

This new route will complement existing services: the year-round Barcelona-New York direct flight, and the seasonal Barcelona-Chicago service, which began in May this year.

With this addition, the company aims to compete with Level, which is the only U.S.-based carrier connecting the Catalan capital directly to the West Coast. United Airlines has also announced a 30% increase in flights from Spain next year.

The new Barcelona-San Francisco service will be operated with the Boeing 777-200ER aircraft, which is designed to seat a total of 276 passengers.
